Madrid, As many as 11 Real Madrid players

have returned to Los Blancos since 2013/14, and Mariano Diaz is set to

become the newest addition to the list.

Having scored 21 goals in a successful year at the French Club

Lyon, the European champions thought it was the right time to exercise

their right of first refusal to re-sign him.

The club has successfully used their re-purchase option in

many cases, letting players develop away from Real Madrid and buying

them back at a later date, the Spanish MARCA newspaper reported.
